"Why of course the people don't want war. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally, the common people don't want war: neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship ... Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger." -- Leading Nazi leader, Hermann Goering, at the Nuremberg Trials before he was sentenced to death

Julian Assange Has Reached Plea Deal With U.S. Allowing Him to Go Free ChrisMenahan

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has reached a plea deal with the US allowing him to go free, according to NBC News.

This is a huge win for Biden.

I would assume he ordered this because his poll numbers are in the dump among progressives due to his support for the Gaza Genocide but it's still the right choice.

Assange has been through some 12 years of torture and even suffered a stroke while in prison.

Australia has been pushing for his release for years now and their demands appear to have been finally met.

The UK government has been accused of blowing £174 million ($220 million) on "external advice" for a new radio system for the armed forces that has been beset by delays and cancelled contracts.

🇱🇧🇬🇧🇮🇱 The Telegraph stealth-edited their report claiming Hezbollah is storing "huge quantities" of missiles and weapons at Beirut's main civilian airport to change the source of a quote from a security official at the "International Air Transport Association" to a security official at "a major international aviation body."

Despite changing their "source," they kept the quote the same and offered no explanation for the change!

Lebanon is now threatening to sue The Telegraph over the "false" claims they made in their report.

The Reform UK leader, who is seeking to enter the House of Commons as the MP for Clacton, accused the London Mayor of "hating England" after TfL warned the capital's 125,000 taxi drivers face harsh penalties for flying flags. In a four-word social media post, Farage said: “Khan really hates England.”
After highlighting small boat crossings across the Channel, he said: 'Remember I went out four years ago, again and again, into the Channel to highlight what was going on, to say you might as well put a sign on the white cliffs of Dover saying 'everyone welcome'.' He added: 'I warned that huge numbers would come, I even said there might be an invasion, which is of course the rudest word you could possibly use in BBC land, but now 4,000 boats and 128,000 people later, it does look like it's been an invasion to me - and it's mostly young men.'
Last week, the weather was pleasant and often balmy across the U.K., and to take full advantage of the gently rising warmth, there was no better place to be than Heathrow Airport. This was the spot where the hottest day U.K. record was secured on no less than five occasions. Further north, heat lovers could have headed for Hull East Park, where the Yorkshire and Humber regional day record was observed no less than four times.

Alastair Morgan, whose brother was murdered in 1987, and Neil Woods, a former undercover police officer who now investigates police corruption, speak to Insider about how police corruption actually works.

Reform UK leader Nigel Farage has accused a prominent legacy media outlet of printing falsehoods and “collaborating” with the Kremlin to smear him to protect the “dying Conservative Party”.

The Mail on Sunday, the sister paper of the Daily Mail, may be facing a lawsuit from Nigel Farage over its headline over the weekend which read: “Zelensky: Farage Is Infected with ‘Virus of Putin’,” after the Brexit leader stated the West played a role in provoking the Russian invasion with EU and NATO expansionism.
